Posting frequently on Facebook, Twitter and other social networks and designating staff members to focus on social media are key to gaining online visibility. Those are just some of the conclusions in the newest nonprofit social-media report from the Internet entrepreneur and philanthropist Craig Newmark.
Skilled fundraisers are some of the most in-demand staff members in the nonprofit world — and they pull in some of the biggest salaries. To look at pay for fundraising leaders at nonprofits nationwide, The Chronicle examined Internal Revenue Service Form 990 data filed by nonprofits with at least $35 million in private support. Below is a sample of what fundraisers make in four U.S. regions. The list provides salaries at the high, midrange, and low end of the salary scale for each region.
Lauren Lindberg, a high-school senior, recently won the under-18 category of the 501c3: Capturing Change on Camera contest sponsored by Tufts University’s Child & Family WebGuide. Her video, "Independence in Sight"—which she directed with Sydney Matterson, Julian Compagni-Portis, and Bonita Tindle—featured programs at the Hatlen Center for the Blind, an organization that trains visually impaired teenagers to live independently.
@UpshotNYT "If you’re feeling generous, you’re likely to get a reward if you donate now, under the current tax system. Because of changes to tax rules, most families won't be able to itemize deductions and thus won't get much tax benefit from charitable giving once the new system kicks in."
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
